Quote: "My brother doesn't have a voice anymore We must fight & speak for him."

Are you willing to speak for him? Are you willing to be that voice? It is time for us to raise our voices as One...for a humble human being...that wanted simply nothing more: Than to share God's Unconditional love and be loved Unconditionally in return.♥

"A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps."

"I believe in God...I gain strength from God.
I believe in Jehovah, God, very much..I believe in God and love God"
Do you have a relationship with Jesus?
Jesus, yes. Aboslutely! The King of Pop, Michael Jackson

He Lives

Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master. Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher . Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. Had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. Blessed be the name of the King of all Kings, Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 31:8

*Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die.*

An Emotionally Disfigured Ambassador

The world is not kind to blemish and imperfection. But you knew that didn't you Michael? Being the perfectionist and artist you were, you continued to see the face in the mirror that the people you loved and trusted as a child, teased and ridiculed you about. The big nose, the problem skin, the Vitaligo. So you kept changing your face. You always empathized with the downtrodden, disabled and disfigured-- you were closer to them than any of us knew. You hid it from the world so well.

Howard McCrary's Letter to His Friend:The King of Pop (Hearts) Traversing the worlds of gospel and secular music, multi-talented Howard McCrary has built a solid reputation as an award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and musician whose resume includes some of the most prestigious and important artists in contemporary music. Whether working with the likes of Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan, Edwin Hawkins, Nina Simone, Ringo Starr or Andrae Crouch, Howard McCrary brings a mix of artistry, enthusiasm, skill and positive energy to each and every project. He and his siblings in the earlier days, known as the McCrarys recorded the album “Just For You” for Portrait Records. Howard said. "We toured with The Jacksons, Gladys Knight, The O'Jays…for Motown Records. As Howard himself says, he could identify with Michael, "I feel that through my music and creative ability I would like to inspire hope, harmony, healing and the dream of world peace.”
On his blog:he writes an open letter to his friend Michael on the day he went home to be with the other angels.
theMy Daughter Sarah woke me up this morning at 7am to tell me of your passing. I was hoping this was some type of publicity stunt that only you or Houdini could pull off.
I remember the first day we met in the summer of 1979 when my family as on tour with your family. The Jacksons and The McCrarys. Did you know we used to be called The McCrary 5? Oh never mind, long story.
When my sister Charity introduced me to you with my brothers Alfred and Sam at that swanky Texas house party you asked me if I was married and I told you I was separated from my wife Chaye and we were going through a divorce. That's when you folded your hands and said, "I will be praying for you." Then you introduced me to your beautiful cousin Jackie and folded your hands again and said, "I'll be praying for you." 10 minutes later you went to other side of the room and made the praying gesture and smiled as you pointed at your cousin. I remember you doing this two more times before finally saying good night again saying “I will be praying for you.” Michael right now I am praying for you. I am praying for you beautiful parents you introduced me to at The Omni Hotel in Los Angeles on your 45th private birthday party the evening your sister Janet asked me to play 'Triste' and her fiancĂ©e Mr. Dupree seemed a little upset as she held both my hands to thank me from her heart for 2 or or three full minutes for playing one of her favorite songs. It was so good to see Jackie that night and Tito and Randy too. Latoya was looking so beautiful as well. Every member of your family are so beautiful and gifted. I remember meeting up with Jermaine at Cocscos and as we shopped together we would talk all about you.
Do you remember that Christmas morning at your home in Beverley Hills when you and your children wanted to hear the children sing? I called my sister Charity and we contacted 12 of the best singing kids we knew, of course some of them being our own family members.We had less than 48 hours to rehearse an coordinate this private production before the children got into the limousines from me and Tammy's home from Sherman Oaks to be convoyed to your Beverly Hills Estate. Seth proudly was there that morning to vocalize all the young ones as I conducted as the children sang with charity accapella, 'Heal The World, Silent Night, Santa Clause Is Coming to Town ( Jackson style)' amongst other songs as they sang on you staircase and you and your children and family sat in that grand foyer combined with the Cathedral like acoustics I could hear additional voices of angels that morning. It was a sacred moment for us all. As you hugged Charity and I to thank us we did a group hug with Seth and sumptuously enjoyed The Christmas Buffet you prepared for all of us. For these children it was a Christmas dream come true. If any of you children are reading this letter please share what that morning meant to you. Your children Michael looked like cherubs.You were such a loving father. Michael I could never understand how could the press could be so ruthless towards you. You are Michael The Angel. I will never forget when I had the joy to work with Andre and Sandra Crouch on your Dangerous CD at Westlake Studio and we were recording the background vocals on 'Keep The Faith' and as Andre was conducting we came to an impasse for over 20 minutes until Andre turned to me and said, "Howard fix it!"So I gave out the parts to the ascending figure of the word 'FAITH' leading to the release and you jumped up and down in the control room saying, "I Love It!"It was that day you invited me up to the green room with my son Darius who was 12 years old at that time .He was part of a new TV sitcom called Family Matters and you told him, "I hear you have been hanging out with Bobby Brown, he is not a good influence. Here take my number and call me anytime. If you need someone to talk to or spend time with, I'll be there. The only thing is when you call don't ask for me or they won't put you through, ask for Norma Jean, it's the code name."For the rest of that day at West Lake Studios he spent with you and was in heaven.All the way home he held your private phone number in his hands aglow and raving about his new awesome friend.As soon as we got home he asked if he could call you and I said yes of course.So very excitedly Darius dialed the number and ask for Michael...click! Then he remembered the code name, called back and asked for Norma Jean...click!Even still to this day he talks about that wonderful day he spent with you at the studio andlearned the lesson of how important it is to follow instructions. Once again and lastly when you went to trial in Santa Barbara and it seemed like the whole world turned their backs on you at another session producer Bruce Swedien pulled my sister Linda and I to the side and said, "Howard and Linda , don't believe The Press. Michael is an angel... he would never hurt the children."I never stopped believing in you or the pure soul that you are. I remember when you thanked my sister Charity and I for bringing 10 busloads of ministers and some of their members to support you during your trial at The Santa Barbara Courthouse. We had singers singing on behalf of you innocence and ministers interceding on your behalf for justice.Thank you for graciously hosting all of us at Neverland not once but twice as we came to show you how much we loved you and believed in your innocence.It is an outrage what some people will do for . Greed, Delusion, and Anger is something you wanted to see our world healed of. Michael it's not too late. I know there are others like myself who believe in your dream that we can have a better world if we only Keep The Faith. As I began writing this letter the sun was shining in Hong Kong and now as I close we are in a Typhoon...strange but Michael...I am not surprised you were always bigger than life and now we know that you are. You and your music, your smile, your dance, but most of all your message will live in our hearts forever.You not only are 'The King of Pop', you are also...'The King of Hearts'
We Love You Michael ! Howard♥
